CyCognito is a provider of an Attack Surface Management platform to prioritize, investigate, and respond to potential security risks.

CyCognito empowers companies to take full control over their attack surface by uncovering and eliminating the critical security risks they didn't even know existed.

CyCognito was founded in Israel in 2017 by Rob Gurzeev and Dima Potekhin. The company is headquartered in Palo Alto, California and Tel Aviv, Israel.


CyCognito leverages Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) to autonomously build a graph data model that portrays an organization’s business structure—from the company’s name to the hundreds of departments, subsidiaries, acquisitions and brands an organization owns. 


CyCognito's platform scans billions of servers and devices across the Internet to contextualize and identify internet-exposed and unmanaged assets that could serve as entry points for attackers.


CyCognito's customers include several Fortune 500 companies, such as Colgate-Palmolive, Tesco and Scientific Games Corporation, as well as government groups like the State of California, who are using the platform to autonomously discover, test and contextualize security threats before they happen.


CyCognito is backed by The Westly Group, Lightspeed Partners, Accel, Thomvest Ventures, Sorenson Ventures, The Heritage Group, UpWest, and others. The company raised $100M in Series C round on Dec 01, 2021. This brings CyCognito's total funding to $153M to date. The latest round valued the company at a $800M post-money.
